Call around to the surgeons in your area to see what they charge.  It is always best to have surgery close to home so you can get after-care.  Prices vary from as little as $5000 in Mexico, to as high as $25,000 the USA.  Our program charges $11,000 for sleeve gastrectomy.  I stopped placing gastric bands several years ago due to high failure rates and poor patient satisfaction.  After-care is also quite expensive after gastric banding because of the cost of band adjustments.
